How Much Can a Salon Owner Make?

Free calculator tool to help project how much revenue you can generate as either an independent hair stylist or the owner of the salon!

With our salon sales calculator you can easily calculate how much revenue a stylist can generate per week.  The calculator will also work well for calculating revenue potential per nail technician or barber.  You will be able to enter in assumptions like:

  • Number of hours worked per day per stylist
  • Days worked per week
  • Prices for various services like a cut and color or pedicure
  • Average time it takes to complete each service
  • What percentage of appointments are for each type of service

Based on these assumptions, our calculator will forecast the weekly income per stylist.  

You can see how the template works in the video demo below:

Ordered the base template to try and modify for my specific business. At first, it was mildly challenging to alter to input my specific requirements, but the customer support was amazing. I received a video instructing me on what I could do to make it work for my business and a separate spreadsheet that was slightly more applicable to my goals. Overall extremely satisfied by the support and speed the team provided and would highly recommend to others in need.
